Pizzerie Top 2020
9° - ‘O Scugnizzo
Giovane Pizzaiolo dell’Anno 2020
S.PELLEGRINO & ACQUA PANNA AWARD
This establishment is located in the splendid framework of the historic center of Arezzo, just a few steps from the Piazza Grande. It is the home of Vasari and was the lovely location for the academy award winning film La Vita è Bella by Benigni. Here you can eat one of the best Neapolitan style pizzas both for its execution and for the Tuscan toppings. Pierluigi Pollice’s pizza is convincing and seductive for its lightness and mastery in the knowledgeable and intelligent use of the ingredients. His menu is a crescendo of simple and evocative emotions. The Pizza del Presidio stands out from the others. It is a true homage to the products from the Campania region, with sausage from Castelpoto, papacelle, provola, Roman conciato by Manuel Lombardi and fiordilatte from Agerola. They are testimony to the care and the research without compromise of a pizza chef that certainly will always get himself talked about. The selection of beers, though limited by the post-COVID situation, is convincing for the variety and the caliber of the styles. It is worth the trip from wherever you may be.
